PAR-TIC-I-PA-TION, or 37 pieces of library flair (also a 365days shot)

Newer Older

Short version: If I'm willing to participate in an organization that is still largely "1.0" and populated with traditional librarians, why can't traditional librarians put aside their fears and perfectionism and choose to participate in social software/web 2.0 activities in their libraries?

(for a blog post)

Many thanks to a libraryland friend for the loaner tshirt.

    This is great and I totally agree with you on your comments. I've been a member for years of groups that include librarians and have many librarian contacts. I regularly follow about 6 librarian bloggers (and did you know there are a number who belong to flickr?) And I am not a librarian, but a teacher. Send this to the librarian groups here on flickr, pronto! Glad to see this photo in 3-2-1 just now.

    Great Picture. I was asked to make a poster for a new library research class and sent this. We will see if they think it is too "edgy."

    You need a huge baggy mac to protect all this art, with bangles, heavy earrings and ballet shoes.
